sshdautoban is a script intended to automatically ban, in real time, attackers that are trying to connect on your sshd service without authorization. It blocks connections from an IP address when it issues too many login errors.
|Operating Systems||POSIX Linux|
Release Notes: The license was changed from GPLv2 to BSD.
Release Notes: The fifo was removed, and sockets are used instead. The fifo was too slow and many log lines could be missed. The documentation was updated.
Release Notes: It is now possible to call the script with the "-c" argument to clean out /etc/hosts.deny. This uses a new parameter: cleanup_period => "week". You may use day, week, or month depending on how long you wish to keep IPs in hosts.deny. The in-script documentation was updated and now contains syslogd configuration and a full change log.
